    Why INFJ, INTJ, INFP & INTP Types Struggle with Inaction

    Why INFJ, INTJ, INFP & INTP Types Struggle with Inaction

    The Intuitive Introvert personality types–INFP, INFJ, INTP and INTJ types (collectively, “INs” or “IN types” )–are famous for their introspective proclivities. In contrast to Extraverted and Sensing types, they're prone to extensive reflection prior to action. While prolonged reflection may enhance their self-awareness and imaginative capacities, IN types frequently struggle to materialize (S) their ideas or insights (N) in the real world. Notions like "analysis paralysis" or "unrealized potential" are often assigned to such types. In this podcast, we explore that struggle with practical examples and insights from type theory, as well as potential solutions. We hope you enjoy it!

    Thinkers in Relationships: An Inside Look

    Thinkers in Relationships: An Inside Look

    This podcast explores the challenges, both practical and psychological, thinking types (e.g., INTP) face in relationships. These challenges largely stem from the inferior nature of thinkers’ feeling (F) function, which can make their feelings more difficult to access, understand, and express. There are exceptions, however, such as periods of infatuation in which feelings are fueled by idealism. While experiencing strong emotions provide the promise of a more rich and rewarding life for thinking types, such experiences can be difficult to sustain once their thinking (T) process regains it typical control. Thinkers are thus faced with the challenge of finding a more sustainable way of integrating feeling into their daily lives and relationships. They must also come to grips with how they will think about and engage with their partners once feelings of infatuation have waned. What will motivate them to persist and grow with their partners?

Don’t listen to the men in the reviews

The reviews are very inaccurate for this podcast! I love the information given! Both the man and women made good points and it’s unfair to attack the woman. These men in the reviews need to stop being intimidated by intelligent women! Hope all is well. You both made great points and this podcast was very informative!

Very informative

It's good to see that Personality Junkie now has a podcast. The speakers of this website are very knowledgable about Jungian typology. They go in-depth into how the functions in personality types relate to one another and exactly what each of them are. Highly recommend if you want to understand yourself on a deeper level.
